Botanical Beverages

Did you know that our plant-based products are great for mixology and cocktail crafting? We've created 4 unique recipes showcasing how to use our products to botanically infuse your beverages in multiple ways.


Green Beans à la French Tarragon Vinaigrette April 19 2017

Dried tarragon often has minimal flavor, and fresh tarragon is not always easy to come by, so having our Tarragon Culinary Essential Oil on hand provides fresh flavor anytime you need it no matter the season. We love the sweet, anise-like, herbaceous flavor profile of this oil, which is potent enough that you only need one or two drops for an entire recipe!

Jasmine Dusted Seared Scallops February 14 2017

Served with Coconut & Brown Jasmine Rice and Ginger Ghee Sautéed Spinach, this delicate meal is perfect for date night!


"Merry Citrus" Meyer Lemon Curd December 09 2016

Here in Arizona, we are lucky enough to have some of the best citrus around, and one of our favorite things to make are citrus curds! For this recipe, we used some excellent Meyer Lemons from McClendon's Select to feature at "The Handmade Holidays" Farmers' Market series. Enjoy!

French Picnic Eggs May 31 2016

This is a wholesome summer snack that holds up well for a day at the park or beach, on a leisurely hike, or at a backyard picnic. Make it a nice, light meal with an accompaniment of dijon mustard and asparagus or chilled steamed green beans tossed with a light vinaigrette.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake May 31 2016

If you didn't tell someone that there is zucchini in this cake, they would never know the difference!

Grapefruit Green Tea May 31 2016

This is our unique take on a refreshing sweet tea. We love to pair citrus with green tea, especially our Ruby Grapefruit and Mandarin Dragon Well Aromatic Finishing Sugars, but the combinations and possibilities are endless, so don't be afraid to play around with it.

Cool As A Cucumber Salad May 31 2016

When the hot summer sun gives you cucumbers, turn them into a refreshing salad that'll cool you down!

New Old-Fashioned Chocolate Soda May 31 2016

A new take on an American classic that has been declining in popularity, this version of a Chocolate Soda will leave you feeling that old-timey spirit but with a slightly healthier mix of ingredients that isn't overwhelmingly sweet. Of course, a dollop of vanilla bean ice cream is the cherry on top of this spirited beverage!

Summer Squash & Zucchini Soup May 31 2016

This soup is excellent served hot, chilled, or at room temperature.  When serving, be sure to add an extra drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkling of Herbs de Provence Salt over the top!

Tomatoes Three Ways with our Botanically Infused Salts May 31 2016

As tomato season approaches, be sure you've got plenty of recipes in your arsenal to make the most of the sweet, ripe bounty that awaits.

Piment d'Ville Popcorn May 31 2016

One of our favorite go-to snacks is this Piment d'Ville popcorn. It is incredibly flavorful and tastes indulgent, but is still light and healthy. This recipe makes plenty to share – or not, if you'd prefer to have it all to yourself!

Market Fresh Compote May 24 2016

Anyone with a fruit tree in their yard can relate to having more produce than they can possibly consume in a season... or maybe there's just that little basket of berries or a few oranges that go unnoticed for a few days in the fridge and are now past their prime for eating.  

Whatever the case, they don't need to go to waste as long as you've got some tricks up your sleeve like these guidelines for making a fruity {or savory} compote.
